Well worth the trip!

The menu is definitely non-standard - every item has the unique Fountain twist, created by Joy and staff! From unique cocktails such as "Grandma's Bourbon Slushy" to "The Harley Quinn" to the signature Ice Cream Martini's, the drink choices alone are worth the trip! The menu items are also... read more

I really love this place! I have eaten there several times while in the area visiting friends and family. They have interesting and tasty drinks, both with and without alcohol. I watched them make a couple of martinis and drinks that looked really unique and appealing. It is a great place for food, dessert, or just cocktails. They even have... More

Looked up restaurants on Tripadvisor and this looked very interesting to me and it is. It brings one back to the art deco era and they have old fashioned (and new) drinks and dessert. Their standing banana split was very good. I wasnt a big fan of the ice cream martinis, because it was way too much alcohol for me.... More

We went here for my birthday. A must for people who like good food for not a big price and dessert too. You'll find a unique cocktail menu. While the food menu isn't large there is something for everyone. There are plenty of selections that are unique but all good. The food is fresh and wonderfully delicious. We ordered smaller... More

The food at the fountain is phenomenal, and fairly inexpensive to boot. I got the Black Hawk sandwich, Brussels Kale cup, and seasonal choc. peanut butter ice cream. All were deliscious, fresh, and unique. Our waiter was extremely nice and helpful. The atomsphere is fun too, as it is art deco/1920's themed. The only reason I didn't give this a... More

My husband and I visited this place 4 years ago and loved the food, service and atmosphere so much, we included this on our "restaurant bucket list".

Wanted to try this restaurant after reading the good reviews, and I was not disappointed. Although there was a bit of a wait because the Saturday lunch crowd was in full swing, we were seated pretty quickly. The sandwiches were hearty and tasty, and the sides were generous portions. Everyone liked everything they ordered. Which brings me to the service.... More

I visited this restaurant in early July with a group of girlfriends over lunch. We started with some of their signature fun cocktails. Everyone liked the fresh and creative drinks made with fresh ingredients and herbs. For our lunch we had great tasty sandwhiches and soups. Several of us had the veggie which was wonderful with the best bread. Another... More
